Asset-building coalitions, task forces, and collaboratives serve as successful venues for developing, promoting, and implementing asset-building policies and initiatives in states. Beginning with those that focused mainly on Individual Development Accounts (IDAs), the Center for Social Development (CSD) has tracked and studied the inception and development of a number of active assets coalitions over the last several years, gathering and analyzing information through a variety of data collection methods. This report is intended to reflect CSD’s key findings, conclusions, and recommendations related to the opportunities, challenges, and benefits of establishing and sustaining state asset-building coalitions.
